I have mentioned that I love to gift books to my kids for the holidays but I also love to gift books to my teenagers and adult friends and family. Ulysses Press has a ton of great titles for older kids and adults that help them to explore their creative side. They make great gifts that can be given as gifts or added to stockings or gift baskets. Here are a few titles that I recently got.
